LIMERICK Animal Welfare has issued a warned about bogus callers.

The animal rescue charity has warned the public that individuals who are going door to door with the aim to collect money are not from Limerick Animal Welfare.

The charity has warned people to be wary of this scam.

“Limerick Animal Welfare never go door to door collecting money. We are not calling door to door and have no connection with anyone or organisation doing so,” a spokesperson for the charity warned.

“We never collect door to door. One person collecting is wearing a blue bib with Limerick Animal Welfare written on it. The man is described as having red hair and is about 5ft 5,” they added.

The bogus callers were seen earlier this week on the Ennis Road.

“They are going from door to door trying to sell scratch cards and collect donations. We have been told that the person involved is saying they are from Limerick Animal Welfare. They are not and we have no connections with this group,” the spokesperson said.
